Let’s get ready to slumber! In this hybrid mattress matchup we have an eco-conscious warrior — the Avocado Green — versus a philanthropic powerhouse — the Leesa Sapira.

Given that both of these beds are hybrid models, which means that they have components of both foam and innerspring mattresses, we want to dig into not only how they are alike, but what sets them apart.

In this Avocado Green vs. Leesa Sapira comparison, we reveal how each bed performed in a variety of tests so you can decide which is right for you.

Who I’d Recommend the Avocado Green For

  • Eco-conscious shopper – This mattress is dedicated to reducing its footprint and comes with many industry-independent environmental certifications.

  • Fans of traditional innerspring mattresses – The coil layer of this hybrid mattress will provide a similar feel to that of traditional innerspring mattresses.

  • Those with allergies or scent sensitivities – One of the drawbacks of many bed-in-a-box brands is the strong chemical scent that emanates from it after it is unboxed (aka off-gassing), but with the all-natural materials of the Avocado green, there is little smell to worry about.

Who I’d Recommend the Leesa Sapira For

  • Back and stomach sleepers – Dedicated back and stomach sleepers generally need a firmer mattress such as the Sapira to keep their hips from sagging too far into the bed.

  • Folks who reposition a lot – Those who sleep in multiple positions need a mattress that is responsive to their movement. With this mattress, combination sleepers shouldn’t feel stuck when they move about.

  • Fans of versatility – The Leesa Sapira combines the best features of traditional innerspring mattress and all-foam beds well. Sleepers are likely to experience a gentle hug from the foam and steady support from the coil system.

Comparing Avocado Green vs Leesa Sapira: Top Similarities

  • Hybrid models – Both mattresses are constructed with a combination of layers of foam and a base of coils.
  • Firmness – The Avocado Green and Leesa Sapira both have a medium firmness level. This means that each bed should appeal to a variety of sleepers.
  • Benefits for sleepers with back pain – The medium firmness coupled with the supportive innersprings of these mattresses should provide excellent support around the hips and optimal support for the spine.

Comparing Casper Original vs Leesa Sapira: Key Differences

  • Cooling capabilities – Although both mattresses excel in cooling, the way they go about keeping sleepers cool is different. In addition to the coils that promote better airflow, the Avocado Green utilizes organic cotton, New Zealand wool, and dunlop latex to keep sleepers cool. The Leesa Sapira has airflow-friendly coils as well as perforated foam for maximum breathability.
  • Price – The Avocado Green uses premium, organic materials in the construction of its mattresses, which is reflected in its higher price tag. It will cost you about 400 dollars more to buy a Queen-size Avocado Green, though this may be worth it to sleepers with allergies or sensitivities.
  • Construction – Although both mattresses are 11-inches tall, the Leesa Sapira has a more complex construction with five distinct layers whereas the Avocado Green only has three.

Comparing Firmness, Support & Feel


We rate mattress firmness on a scale from 1 to 10, with one being soft as a cloud. When it comes to mattresses, firmness simply means how soft or hard a bed feels when you are lying on it. The Avocado Green and Leesa Sapira have similar firmness scores, which come in at a 6.5 out of 10 and a 6 out of 10, respectively. This means that these mattresses provide a good combination of contouring softness and sturdy support, though the Avocado Green will feel slightly firmer. If you’d like to soften up the Avocado Green, you have the option to purchase a pillow top for 500 dollars more.

firmness scale for 6 and 6.5


The Avocado Green has an impressively strong support system thanks to its hybrid design, which features firm Dunlop latex on the top and bottom layers with a core of over 1,400 individually-wrapped steel coils sandwiched in the middle. Latex is already an incredibly supportive material, and when coupled with the recycled steel coils, the result is an ultra-supportive sleep experience.

On the other hand, the Sapira boasts a quick response layer that is made up of more than 1,000 coils that extend to the edge of the bed. A base layer of high-density foam finishes off this mattress for extra sturdiness and structure.


Many sleepers may find that it feels like you are floating on a cloud when lying on the Leesa Sapira. This is mainly because when you first settle on the bed, you feel the upper comfort layers contour to your body, while the supportive base layers below keep you ‘on top’ of the mattress.

Though the Avocado Green is also a hybrid mattress, it should feel more bouncy and responsive than the Sapira. That's because latex is a springy material, and the coils provide ample bounce.

Comparing Sinkage and Bounce

If you’re looking for a bed that provides a lot of reactivity and bounce for repositioning and other bedroom activities, you will be well-served by both the Avocado Green and the Leesa Sapira. The coils and foams combine to help you move easily and not feel stuck when sleeping on either of these mattresses. Folks who like to be hugged by their mattress should probably lean towards the Leesa Sapira as it will provide more contouring as opposed to the Avocado Green, which has a firmer, more responsive feel.

Comparing Motion Transfer

Although the benefits of bounce are bountiful, they can lead to problems with motion transfer. However, despite its devotion to bounce, the Avocado still does a great job at keeping motion transference to a minimum. This is due in large part to the latex foam layers, which act as motion absorbers. Not to be outdone, the Leesa Sapira’s use of memory foam and a pocketed coil system work together to keep one partner’s motion from disturbing the other. Therefore, for those who sleep with restless partners, either of these mattresses will do a good job of keeping their twists and turns to their side of the bed.

Comparing Cooling

The Leesa Sapira leans heavily on its coils to provide cooling. Its topmost foam layer is also perforated with tiny holes to promote ventilation and breathability. On the other hand, the Avocado Green uses several naturally cooling materials (in addition to its coil base) such as organic cotton, New Zealand-sourced wool, and Dunlop latex that help pull heat away from you and keep you cooler through the night. Hot sleepers should sleep comfortably on either mattress, though we recommend the Avocado Green more for those who want maximum cooling.

Comparing Construction (Materials & Quality)

Avocado Green Construction

The top of the 11-inch Avocado mattress is covered in a breathable organic cotton cover that features wool yarn rosettes that extend from the top to the bottom, which should increase the durability of this mattress.

Avocado Green layers of the mattress new design
  • The first layer consists of 2 inches of GOLS-certified naturally- and sustainably-sourced Dunlop latex that is more heat-resistant than other foams.
  • The second layer is made from individually-pocketed, 8-inch upcycled steel coils.
  • The base layer consists of 1-inch Dunlop latex. This layer is more dense than the top layer which results in a more firm feel.
  • The edge of this mattress has stronger coils to add additional support to these areas.

The combination of these materials combine to make a top-notch mattress, but it should be noted that this also makes it fairly heavy. It is recommended that you have a sturdy base to place it on.

Leesa Sapira Construction

A breathable polyester covers the Leesa Sapira. Soft-to-the-touch, the Leesa Sapira’s construction consists of five layers and stands 11 inches tall.

Leesa Sapira Hybrid Construction
  • The top layer consists of 1.5-inches of quick-responding, pinhole-aerated cooling foam. This layer allows for easy repositioning and temperature regulation.
  • The comfort layer is next and is made of 1.5-inch thick memory foam. This is where sleepers should experience gentle contouring, and it will also offer pressure relief.
  • The transition layer consists of 1-inch of core support foam. This supportive layer adds additional motion isolation and provides the transition between the foam comfort layers and the coils.
  • The support layer is where you find over a thousand 6-inch pocketed coils. The coils extend across the entire mattress, which helps provide edge support.
  • Under the support layer is a 1-inch of stabilizing foam.

Comparing Company Policies & Price

  • Warranty – The Avocado Green has a 25-year warranty — well above the industry average of 10 years, which is the warranty that the Leesa Sapira offers.
  • Shipping – The Avocado Green ships free to all 50 states, and home set-up is available for an additional fee. If you purchase a Leesa Sapira, it will ship free throughout the United States and Canada. You can also purchase at-home delivery, though it’s worth noting that the at-home delivery option takes longer with both mattresses.
  • Trial Period – With the Leesa Sapira you will get 100 nights to try out your mattress, while you can enjoy a full year to make sure that the Avocado Green is the mattress of your dreams.
  • Returns – You can initiate a return on the Leesa Sapira after 30 days of the trial as long as it is before the end of the 100-night trial. Although you can return the Avocado Green at any time during the trial, you must keep it 30 days to avoid early return fees.
  • Price – The Avocado Green is more expensive than the Leesa Sapira. However, it also comes with a longer warranty and trial period. It also uses premium, eco-friendly materials, so the extra cost may be worth it to some.

Final Thoughts

Was it a slam dunk from the Avocado Green or did the Leesa Sapira send its opponent to dreamland? When it comes to these hybrid heavyweights, there was no clear winner. These mattresses are very similar across many categories, and after that your choice will mainly depend on your personal preferences.

To sum up their differences, we think the Avocado Green offers better cooling, while the Sapira will likely give more of a floating, sleeping-on-a-cloud experience since it’s slightly softer. Both should provide back and stomach sleepers with a restful nights sleep, but if you’re looking to save a little money you will want to put the Sapira in your cart. On the contrary, if you’re dedicated to eco-friendly products or are a sleeper with allergies, we recommend the Avocado Green.
